If we don’t dare to pray for the big things, then we’ve failed to see the size of the opportunity in front of us. Do we understand the power that we’re dealing with? Do we truly believe that God answers prayer?
Remember Nehemiah? When he first heard about the condition of Jerusalem, with its walls broken down and gates burned, he prayed. This was not just a casual prayer. Instead, it gives us a pattern for successful praying. You almost have to be a special type of person to pray like this.
If you need to know how to pray better, and with a deeper reality, study the book of Nehemiah. Pay particular attention to this prayer.
